She was my husband's horse but he hasn't paid attention to her in a long time. I rode her and my sister rode her. She was a special and good girl, our Dolly. We don't know what happened but may have been bitten by a snake. She had a huge abcess in the back of her mouth and I rushed her to the equine hospital yesterday. They took care of the abcess and in the process had to give her a tracheotomy. This morning they said her tongue was necrotic and she was 19. Even if she could recover it would take weeks and thousands of dollars, with no guarantee. I had to make the decision because I couldn't get ahold of my husband. Well, I am in a fog in between crying jags so better shut up. Time to leave work which is good 'cause I just want to crawl into bed.
